to work so what we saw was mitt romney ran a pretty good six months operation, but six months operations don't work very well against for your operations. lou: nobody had ever been in that situation before running against an incumbent. i like the fact republican party is looking critically and being pretty tough on itself in this report, but i have to be honest with you, the republican solutions for boosting grassroots support is the rnc to build a database of leaders. could you imagine such a thing? we need a database of leaders, the african-american, asian pacific islander communities. how about a database of the hispanics, blacks, the people of this country, get that database, to the heck with the leaders, you're talking about becoming leaders, through reaching out to those communities and seeking out the next generation of leaders in those communities. republicans should be, they said in this new report, speaking out when the ceos get big bucks. when they receive lots of money in retirement but the middle class gets shafted. folks, i said a year and a half ago on this broadcast which
of all during the election year that tape of mitt romney talking to rich people in florida about the people, the 47%, who aren't rich? priebus talks about outreach to the young, yet it was his party that opposed issues important to younger voters. marriage equality, abortion rights, gun safety. and he's still talking, actually pushing big tax cuts for the rich and cuts in medicare and medicaid that affect the middle class and poor. what a strange thing it is to hear reince priebus talking about building bridges when he was the one with his hands on the detonator? former pennsylvania governor ed rendell is with us as well as managing editor of the grio joy reid. i'm just wondering, why would a political party believe a new fr strategy would cover up for its policies? >> it makes no sense at all. first of all, their policies are bankrupt. they're the exact same, and they haven't changed their policies a bit, chris. you see republican state legislators pushing antiabortion bills that are clearly unconstitutional, clearly punitive to women. no exceptions for incept and rape. things t
romney became the fifth of the last six republican presidential nominees to fail to win the popular vote. last week he told a meeting of party conservatives that he fell short. >> as someone who just lost the last election i'm probably not in the best position to chart the course for the next one. >> ifill: romney's defeat has inspired much republican soul searching. today party chairman reince priebus unveiled his solution. >> we want to build our party. we want to do it with bold strokes to show we're up to the challenge and we're done with business as usual. >> ifill: the 98-page report detailed the party's failures in 2012. >> as it makes clear, there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. so there's no one solution. there's a long list of them. >> ifill: called the growth and opportunity project or g.o.p., the report is unsparingly self-critical, conceding among other things that the party is increasingly seen as the province
mitt romney of course a couple weeks ago said the longer primary process hurt him. but again, i think this is very much the establishment in washington, it's going to be interesting to see how this plays, going out into states. or maybe the center of gravity isn't necessarily with the rnc. >> good point. some of that divergence that we saw over the weekend clearly at cpac. another report is that america looks different. that the rnc is going to spend millions of dollars, $10 million to reach out to latino americans, asian voters and here's what steve latourette said. take a listen. >> if we ever want to be a national party, we have to look like america. today, we look like a bunch of white guys from below the mason/dixon line. >> so how do they change the reputation of a party of stuffy white men as has been said, as the report describes it when candidates when chosen are often white men? >> well, it's not just the candidates. it's the workers, it's the convention. you go to the republican national convention it looks entirely different than the democratic convention that looks truly
throughout the country, that on the floor of the house today we passed the ryan-romney republican job losing budget bill which repeals the affordable care act. at least the part that's about care. it takes the savings that we have in the bill, uses it to sustain their tax breaks for -- that are unnecessary and not job creating for special interest. so it's sort of a hoax that you would take the money and repeal the bill. so no benefits but we'll keep the savings. it is in sharp contrast to the bill that was our democratic alternative put forth by chris van hollen, our ranking democrat on the budget committee. and that was a bill that's job creating with investments and innovation and rebuilding our infrastructure and innovation that relates to energy. it's about investing in education so that we are competitive and number one to build that, strengthens and sustains our commitment to our seniors, whether it's their economic or their health security. in contrast to the ryan bill, billion, almost $100 $the 8 billion from pell grants, $100 billion from pell grants, and in the decade ends the is
issue given mitt romney had a similar plan in massachusetts. when you look at it today you really have to compare, especially given what steve is saying the status quo, which is it's a huge burden on individuals, families and corporate america as it stands now, healthcare costs, versus trying to implement something that is intended to reduce those costs. >> bret: i guess when you hear doctors who are opposed to obama care, or concerned about it. they talk about the $18 million added to medicaid and they talk about it already, doctor shortage and that underpayment for medicare already happens. if you think there is a shortage now, just wait until this thing kicks in in 2014. i guess that is the biggest thing you hear. >> and it points to the distinction between health insurance and real healthcare. you could have sham health insurance, a lot of americans will get. but if you don't a doctor, if doctors refuse to treat because of the payment schedules that are obscenely low that no doctor will take. already today, the medicare patients are turned away from a lot of doctors. if that is wid
of the three million white guys that didn't vote for romney. i'm one of the people that are being driven away. first of all, i just think it's interesting, talking about the challenges of asians and hispanic communities, well, how come we don't talk about the challenges that germans face or italians or polish? because those groups assimilated. i don't know how many times i have to keep saying this, it just goes in one ear and out the other -- host: you think republicans are having trouble reaching out to those groups as well? >> caller: no, i used to believe in assimilation. we used to believe in moratoriums on migration, which was best for the whole country is unity. it's not diversity. it's encouraging groups to reject the idea of ethnic voting blocs and ethnic grievance. we don't believe in that. now, the republicans, country club republicans leadership wants to become democrats. they want to bow to the concept of the permanent ascendancy of multilingualism, the permanent ascendancy of group identity, and it's not going to work. and for every person they might reach out to, if they want to

, how to tackle women's issues in a way that doesn't repel women, as mitt romney did in november. >> lots of work ahead. thanks very much, brianna for that report. the report, by the way, repaired by the republican national committee, is remarkably blunt in discussing the party's problems. the rnc chairman is blunt, as well. reince priebus is joining us now live from party headquarters. reince, thanks very much for coming in. >> hey, wolf. thanks for having me. i told you it was going to be big and bold, and i know a lot of people didn't expect it this way. but that's what we delivered this morning. >> certainly did. in fact, i have a copy of it right here, and it's a lot of pages. and the type is pretty small. the font, we should say. let's talk a little bit about what the big problem -- is it a problem of messaging? is it a problem of organization? or is there a substantive policy issue that you have to change? >> well, i think that, you know, here's where i kind of focus in as chairman of the party, and it makes sense. this is where i would first go. and i just think that we h

's plans. this so called autopsy is calling for the gop to shift its focus. >> reporter: after mitt romney lost last november, party leaders, ordered an autopsy on what went wrong. they released the findings in a report called the growth in opportunity project. >> we need to do a much better job crafting our message to appeal to voters from demographics who have not been voting republican. >> reporter: the report says they need to reach out to minorities especially latino voters who overwhelmingly supported president obama. republicans should tailor their message. >>> the message should be we are going to provide, opportunities, without regard to the color of your skin. >> reporter: it urges them to reach out to women. >> marketing politics is like a product you have to use messaging specific to the target to succeed. >> reporter: we asked voters downtown walnut creek. >> the generation my children are growing up and have a much different view of the world than the republican party of you know my generation or the generation before. > republicans are mired in the past i am republican i do
they go out and talk to people, they are treated so badly. like romney went to philadelphia and got heckleed. when you look at the twitter feed, how badly was he? you have professors that are incompetent and that is the only thing you can do. this goes back to what dennis prager said, the right thinks the left is wrong, but the left thinks the right is evil. that excuses the dehumanizing behavior. the behavior that allows you to denigrate a surgeon. by the way, why are all surgeons conservatives? what is it about that? do they understand, you know, logic -- >> dana: logic and fact. >> greg: rapid paul, ophthalmologist, not a surgeon. ophthalmologists performs surgery. >> dana: they could. >> greg: case closed. >> eric: move to future of the g.o.p. >> kimberly: let's do it. >> dana: so bright you have to wear shades. >> eric: me and a lot of conservatives scratching our head as they talk about rebanding the party, because it's perceived as "stufffy old men" and needs to change its ways. we had thoughts on the g.o.p. rush limbaugh. listen. >> the republicans are totally bamboozled and

, push the party message and earn votes with ticket-topper mitt romney. then came last november. remys did hold on to the u.s. house of representatives and majority of gubernatorial seats among other win, yet given the fiery and sometimes ugly blame game, mr. priebus might have been wished for the days he was recognized as a rising star all while taking the republican party by storm. he's been working on campaigns since he was 16 and wound through the wisconsin republican party ranks and up to the rnc. he is proud to be a lifelong green pay packers fan. -- green bay packers fan. we're told he played a mean game of softball during his time working on his law degree at the university of miami. a time to reflect and look forward happens in any party that loses, but it doesn't lessen the sting when you're the recipient. mr. priebus has been working on a way to rally the faithful and plot a new strategy for the midterm election in 2014 and presidential contest in 2016. one of the silver linings which happened along the way is getting reelected as party chairman. to create a playbook for his

. he was a fan of mitt romney. >> these political moments are going to happen. the u.s. under president obama has a lot to rebuild in terms of credibility with the israeli people. the president is trying to divide jerusalem, roll israel back to the 1967 borders which are indefensible and pressure israel not to launch a preemptive military strike against iran, all three of which are issues israelis take very personally because it is in their national security interests. but for the president to actually be on the ground in israel is always a historic moment. it is important with this president and prime minister. and i don't want to be a cynic. i'm a critic of the president's policies on iran but i don't want to be a cynic. bill: one more point here. we mentioned the green light. you suggest if the green light has not been given, why not? >> yeah. well, the press conference yesterday was interesting. it will take some time to sift this thing out but the president's repeatedly stated that israel has the right of self-defense and the united states should be helping israel be able to defend
